Blog: Father's Day With Joy Graysen - 2011-06-19
This has been a long time coming. A lonnnnnng time coming. I have been heartily "out of the closet" since Michael Fairman was descended upon by the undead, but I hadn't figured out where to begin to unfold my story - so I procrastinated.
After meeting with Marty and Mike a few Tuesdays ago here in L.A., witnessing the keystone-cop-esque ABSURDITY (to be kind) of "the squirrel-buster" brigade and after being part of the conversation which encouraged Michael to write his latest post, I decided I had done enough procrastinating.
My name is Joy Graysen. Some of you know me as Joy Stimmel, Joy Veikley, Joy Fairman, Michael's wife, Sky's mother. Some of you know me as the voice of Flag's anthem "Flag Is Here". Some of you know me from all of the church events I have sung for over the last 25 years. And some of you don't know me at all. After this open letter, hopefully you will just know me as Joy — one of you.
